A new luxury boutique hotel has opened in the NSW Southern Highlands just two hours from Sydney and Canberra.
Osborn House will open its doors in Bundanoon this January offering 22-suites and a special blend of country hospitality and restorative spa treatments.
Osborn House general manager Adrian Levy says the Osborn House team is building on a rich legacy of leisure as Bundanoon has hosted holidaymakers since the 1890s.
“Our vision was to establish a new regional playground where our guests can leave behind their everyday and escape to a place where relaxed retreat and playful guesthouse meet,” he said.
“We want them to feel as if they’re spending time at a luxe family home in the Cotswolds countryside with our history, quirks and the privacy of the hilltop location all helping to take them a world-away-from-their-worlds.
“At Osborn House, we take our guests on a magical journey which imparts new experiences, ideas and memories. Osborn House really does manifest its own time and place in the world, making it a truly special offering in Australia.”
The hotel also offers two premium dining and drinking experiences, with Dinah’s restaurant and George’s bar both offering indoor and outdoor terrace spaces with views over Morton National Park.
The food offering at Osborn house will be led by executive chef team Segundo Farrell and Luz Gimenez, who both spent considerable time learning the art of fire cooking with Latin American food legend Francis Mallmann.
Utilising their skills cooking over fire, Segundo and Luz will bring the theatre of cooking this way to Osborn House, with frequent outdoor events which complement the more traditional dining offering.
A kitchen garden has been established in Osborn House’s century-old gardens, and a cooking school will be added in early 2022.
Wellness facilities include a 25m lap pool and an ultra-luxe spa with four treatment rooms, and sauna.
